Manning Centre Summary

I left Toronto today after an exciting weekend at Preston Manning’s inaugural roundtable discussion in Toronto.

For a few details, check out Tom Blackwell’s article and read Lorne Gunter’s column in the National Post today (no link available).

The weekend was full of hope for what Mr. Manning is seeking to accomplish: building the infrastructure of the right.

The weekend conference was held in the gallery of the Toronto Stock Exchange and our group of 100 conservative thinkers and builders spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday hashing out ideas and discussing the future of conservatism.

I’m glad that I got to catch up with some old friends and meet some new ones including many that I have long looked up to over the years.

Without arming any Liberals with any details I will however say that this Manning Centre effort is what conservatives have long been waiting for.
